Happy birthday, FlowingData. You’re three today

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

Can you believe it? FlowingData is three years old today. I'm in the middle of a cross-country move, so I can't get into the number rundown like I usually do, but I just wanted to take this chance to thank all of you for reading. Thanks for sharing links with your friends and sending in suggestions. Every retweet, like, digg, and stumble helps FlowingData reach a wider audience.

It seems so long ago when I was just rambling to myself around here. Now there are 40k of you. Next year, 100k?

Thanks to all the sponsors too, past and present, who help keep the gears turning around here. I couldn't have done it without you.

Happy birthday, FlowingData!

Grab a sticker and show your undying love for FD for everyone to see :).
